Edible Plants of Summer
June 26, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The summer months are a bounty of ripe berries, nectar-laden edible flowers, and the amazing edible plants along the seashore, as edible mushrooms carpet the forest floor after warm, rainy days. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of summer, from beach plums to invasive wineberries, including some of the choice summer fungi like chanterelles and the myriad of pored Boletes. Join The 3 Foragers – a family of experienced, local foragers – as they teach the edible plants and fungi of summer with their original photos and recipe ideas, and then take a short stroll outside to put some of those newly learned skills to the test. The 3 Foragers book will be for sale at the program. Program meets at the DPNC.$6.80/member, $8/nonmember
